On Tuesday night, renowned pianist Holly Bowling continued her fall tour with a stop at Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, Georgia. Bowling has become a beloved figure of the jam community, gaining widespread recognition that catapulted her onto the radar a few years back for her solo piano reimaginings of Phish and Grateful Dead jams. During her show last night, the classically trained pianist captivated her Atlanta audience with a two-set show that ran down her usual covers of well-loved in addition to offering the debut of a brand-new original, “Proxima B”.Opening the show with the upbeat Grateful Dead classic, “China Cat Sunflower”, Bowling took her time in transition the song through to “Billy Breathes”, the title track of Phish’s 1996 release. After a stirring rendition of the Dead’s “Bird Song”, the pianist started in on an “It’s Ice” sandwich. During “It’s Ice”, Bowling gave a nod to Atlanta, sandwiching her own rendition of Phish’s accoladed 25-plus-minute Atlanta “Tweezer” jam on August 1st, 2015 within the tune, marking the first time she’s reimagined the Phish jam in 85 shows. From there, Bowling debuted her new tune, “Proxima B”, before a combo of “AC/DC Bag” into the set-closing “I Know You Rider”, with the set opener and closer referencing the Grateful Dead’s frequent pairing, “China > Rider”.For set two, Bowling opened things up with the Grateful Dead’s “Lost Sailor” before using the tune as a springboard into Phish’s “A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing” and “Dirt”, with Bowling again working references into “China > Rider” across the latter two numbers. The five-song second set closed out with the Dead’s “Estimated Prophet” and “Saint Of Circumstance,” before Bowling returned with an encore of Duane Allman’s “Little Martha” and a show-closing interpretation of “Squirming Coil”.You can check out full video and setlist of Holly Bowling’s performance at Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, Georgia, last night below, courtesy of the artist.Setlist: Holly Bowling | Eddie’s Attic | Atlanta, GA | 10/10/2017Set One: China Cat Sunflower > Billy Breathes, Bird Song, It’s Ice > ATL 2015 Tweezer jam* > It’s Ice, Proxima B #, AC/DC Bag > I Know You RiderSet Two: Lost Sailor > A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing ** > Dirt ***, Estimated Prophet > Saint of CircumstanceEncore: Little Martha, Squirming Coil **Notes: # first time played, Holly Bowling original | * Last played Sept 10, 2016 (85 Shows) | ** with China Cat teases | *** with I Know You Rider teases Set One Set Two[Photo: Holly Bowling’s Facebook page]

The Saint Mary’s College Student Government Association (SGA) passed legislation outlining the future structure of Senate and announced the dates of the upcoming College-wide elections in their meeting Tuesday. The student body election period will take place from Feb. 27 to March 1. Candidates for SGA, Residence Hall Association, Student Activities Board, Student Diversity Board, student body president and vice president may begin campaigning Feb. 26. The results of the elections on March 1 will be announced the following day. Senate and Class Board candidates may begin campaigning March 4 for the March 8 elections, with results announced March 9. Current juniors, sophomores and first years can campaign for Senate positions during this period. Incoming first years will round out the Senate with elections in September. SGA members will staff an informational table from Feb. 13-17 to introduce students to the future structure of SGA. Though the table’s location has yet to be determined, SGA members will inform them about the election process, executive secretary Emma Brink said. “We are committed to getting as many students as possible to participate in the elections, whether by running or voting,” Brink said. Brink said SGA hopes the presence of the informational table will increase voter participation in the upcoming election. Part of SGA’s new structure will involve incorporating creative ways to get more students to vote and promoting enthusiasm about running for Senate. In its meeting, SGA also approved legislation outlining the new structure of the Senate, which will now be comprised of fifteen students who represent diverse interests and student involvement at Saint Mary’s. The students will be divided by class year to guarantee fair representation of the student body, with positions allocated for four seniors, four juniors, four sophomores and three first years. “SGA is extremely excited to introduce the new structure to students and promote the new opportunities that students will have on the Senate,” Brink said.
FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Vietnam’s state oil firm PetroVietnam is seeking to venture into renewable energy sources like wind farms and floating solar panels, as domestic crude oil production has peaked at most of its offshore oil fields.The company, formally known as Vietnam Oil and Gas Group, is targeting 100 megawatts (MW) of renewable capacity by 2025 and 900 MW by 2035, it told Reuters on Wednesday.“Fossil fuels are shrinking and, therefore, developing renewable energy is inevitable,” PetroVietnam said in an email in response to Reuters questions.PetroVietnam said it would initially build floating solar panels at some of its hydropower dams and install rooftop solar panels at its existing coal-fired power plants. It will later seek investment from foreign and domestic investors to develop solar and wind farms and waste-to-power plants throughout the country, it added.According to the Ministry of Industry, the total installed capacity of Vietnam’s wind and solar power plants has risen strongly over the recent years to 5,500 MW.Vietnam said it will more than double its power generation capacity over the next decade to 125-130 gigawatts and raise the proportion of renewable energy to 20% by 2030, from the current of around 10%..

Arsene Wenger is braced for gloomy news as Arsenal await a specialist’s verdict on the tibia injury that could leave Olivier Giroud facing a significant spell on the sidelines. Giroud has been ruled out of Wednesday night’s Champions League qualifier against Besiktas with the shin problem sustained in Saturday’s draw with Everton. It is feared the 27-year-old could be absent for two to three months, robbing Arsenal of their first choice striker just three games into the season. Press Association Summer signing Alexis Sanchez could operate as the lone striker against Besiktas, although doubts have been raised over his ability to perform the role. Sanchez was replaced at half-time at Goodison following an ineffective 45 minutes as the focal point of Arsenal’s attack, but Wenger is convinced he can operate as more than a winger. “You do not convict a player on one half. It was not all bad what he did, there was some quality in what he did,” Wenger said. “It was just that on the day we needed more physical presence. When you’re 2-0 down you don’t play counter attack.” Yaya Sanogo, Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell are also options, although it is Sanogo, who missed out against Everton because of a hamstring injury, who is most likely to start. Wenger, who ruled out Podolski leaving in the transfer window, is confident he has the options to cover for Giroud’s absence in the second leg of the qualifier at the Emirates Stadium. “Yes of course, why should I not have that confidence?” Wenger said. “Nobody can image that when one player is missing, no matter how big the player is, the team can’t win a game any more.” Arsenal are seeking a 17th successive season in the lucrative group stage of the Champions League, but Wenger insists it would not be a financial disaster should they fail to qualify. The first leg finished in a goalless draw in Istanbul. “It will affect us because we’ll have less income, but it will not affect our balance sheet in a dramatic way because we can survive without that,” Wenger said. “We want to be in the Champions League because we want to play top level football. “Financially we’ve always adapted. When we had small resources, we always adapted to having small resources.” “On Sunday he had a medical check and he needed to have further investigations,” said Wenger, who revealed an announcement will be made over his fitness on Wednesday afternoon or evening. “The first news wasn’t fantastic, but I’m not a doctor so I wait for tomorrow’s (Wednesday’s) complete examination and decision over how long he’ll be out for. “It can be (long term), we’ll see. I don’t know (if it’s broken). It’s sad for us, but for the moment we are focused on the game.” Wenger may be forced into the transfer market in search of a replacement if Giroud is missing for any length of time. The Frenchman, however, refuses to panic buy before the window closes on Monday. “We have plenty of players at centre forward. In England as soon as you have a problem, people want you to buy,” he said. “Unfortunately, I can give you some clubs that every time they lose a game they say they might need to buy more. “We are 24 hours from a big game and our focus is more on that than the transfer window. “I’ve learnt one thing in our job – you say nothing categorically.”
Vice President Pence is making a surprise visit to US troops in Iraq.Pence arrived on the unannounced trip Saturday to meet with American troops ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.Pool reporters traveling with the Vice President said he visited the airbase in western Iraq as well as also spoke with Iraq’s prime minister by phone.On the call, Pence told Mahdi that he traveled to Iraq in part to “extend gratitude” to the men and women of the US military serving in your country, according to the TV travel pool with the vice president.Vice President Pence then delivered remarks to about 150 service members in a hanger. “The President and your Vice President and the American people are behind you 100%,” Pence said, according to the TV travel pool.Pence told the service members that the Trump administration was “fighting to secure another pay raise for the men and women in the military,” but added “we need Congress to do their jobs,” the TV travel pool reported.“Congress should have finished their work months ago, but you know that partisan politics and endless investigations have slowed things down,” Pence said, according to the pool.He was reportedly referring to the House impeachment proceedings into President Donald Trump and Ukraine.Pence also visited the Iraqi city of Erbil, where some US special operations forces have routinely been based.According to reports, he also met with the President of the Kurdistan region of Iraq, Nechirvan Barzani, during that visit.“On behalf of President Trump, I also welcome the opportunity to reiterate the strong bonds forged in the fires of war between people of the United States and Kurdish people across this region,” Pence said during his meeting with Barzani, according to the pool report.Pence’s visit comes over a month after the US announced the withdrawal of US forces out of northern Syria, where America was fighting alongside Kurds in the region.However, after severe backlash from lawmakers, including GOP officials, the Trump administration opted to keep some troops in Syria.President Trump visited troops at the same US Air Force base around Christmas time last year.It was the first trip Trump made to a war zone as President.

(REUTERS) – Craig Ervine scored a maiden Test century to help Zimbabwe hold up New Zealand’s victory charge on day three of the second Test and steer the home side to 305 for six in their first innings by stumps yesterday.The featherbed pitch at the Queens Sports Club is a batsman’s paradise with just 10 wickets failing in 270 overs in the game so far to see Zimbabwe close in on the visitors’ first-innings score of 582 for four declared.Ervine took advantage of the conditions to crash an unbeaten 115 after forming a 148-run sixth-wicket partnership with debutant Peter Moor (71).He will be joined today by captain Graeme Cremer (two not out) as the home side look to avoid the follow-on, needing 78 more runs to make New Zealand bat again.Zimbabwe started the day on 55 without loss and it took until the end of the 36th over of their innings for the tourists to make a breakthrough as Tim Southee bowled opener Tino Mawoyo (26) off the inside edge.It brought to an end the fifth-longest opening stand in terms of overs bowled in Zimbabwe’s Test history.Sikandar Raza (three) steered Neil Wagner to Kane Williamson at gully, before the latter dived full-stretch at short cover to dismiss Chamu Chibhabha (60) with a stunning catch off spinner Mitchell Santner.Zimbabwe were teetering when Santner bowled Prince Masvaure (two) and Ish Sodhi trapped Sean Williams (16) leg-before-wicket to reduce the hosts to 147 for five.Ervine and Moor embarked on a patient rebuild of the innings, with the latter undoing some of his good work when he fell late in the day to a reckless shot as he pulled a poor delivery from Sodhi straight to Martin Guptill at midwicket.New Zealand lead the two-match series 1-0 after an innings and 117-run victory in the first Test at the same venue.
